Black Brunswickers - Light Battalion


Just a quick one for today. Some of you may remember this post HERE, where I talked about buying some models that someone else had already painted. I was surprised I did it at the time, but as I hoped, with a little prising models off bases and sticking them done to other bases, touching up a few bitz here and there, adding a mounted officer, and then rebasing everything I'd have a new battalion for my Napoleonic collection.


My thanks again to Pat Smith (of Wargaming with Silver Whistle blog fame) for these great models at a great price. I need to get a hold of a few Line battalion packs from the Perrys now to expand my Black Bruswicker Brigade (try saying that three times fast). Should be sometime in the new year, but I'm sure it'll happen.

Cheers
Dave

  1. Hi Dave,
    You have done a fantastic job with the basing and the mounted officer finishes them off nicely. I think I'll have them back now thanks.
    Cheers,
    Pat.

    1. Thanks Jon, but the bulk of these were painted by Pat Smith. I just added a few models and touch ups here and there.

  4. Pretty soon you will have to do a full image of your collection. Thankfully mine expanded a bit but I still have a ways to go! We should get a game in soon!

    1. Soon, but I'd like to get about another 4-5 regiments sorted first.
